Discovering new music is hands down the best part of my job. For me, obviously because I love music, but it’s also rewarding to share new music with you every day on the radio, each week on the Local Brew Hour, plus here in Liner Notes. There’s something about Foster McGinty’s catchy, upbeat, Stonesy sound - complete with crunchy guitars, background vocals and harmonica that offers a bit of brightness and fun in these dark and serious times. Foster McGinty was born in Memphis, Tennessee but grew up in southeast Missouri and has lived in Los Angeles, New York and now here in Nashville.

Courtesty of the Artist

This week's new releases include Hard Working Americans, Shawn Camp, Ana Carter Cash, Elvis Costello & The Imposters all inspired by the poetry of Johnny Cash, and new rarities album from The Wild Feathers, and a genre-expanding album from Front Country.

Folk, Indie-folk, pop, soul and even some pretty heavy rock – all of those sounds could be used to describe Nashville singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Adkins. He’s shared bills with artists ranging from indie rockers Cage the Elephant to country hitmakers Little Big Town and the late outlaw country poet, Billy Joe Shaver and was a founding member of Nashville psychedelic blues rockers, Mellow Down Easy. He just released his first solo record since 2017’s To Become Immortal Then Die. Today in Liner Notes we’ll get into the new album, The Echoist.
